In addition, Ubuntu Cape Town moved out of the relegation zone after whacking Super Eagles 3-0 and Witbank Spurs overpowered Cape Town All Stars 1-0.

The Lions of the North, thanks to goals from Sphiwe Mahlangu, Moeketsi Sekola, Lindokuhle Mbatha, Peter Shalulile and Vukile Mngqibisa, made their triumphant return to the lucrative PSL with for four games to play, having acquired 59 points out of a possible 78.

AmaTuks, for whom Chemon Petersen scored, now has a goal difference of -10 and are completely out of the race for a place in the playoffs.

On the other hand, Lidoda Duvha secured their 44th point – 15 behind Highlands – and look one of the favourites to finish in the top three.

Ivan Mahangwahaya was their hero with a late winner but Uthongathi’s NFD status hangs in the balance.

Ezenkosi, with successful efforts from Ananias Gebhardt, Tebogo Mabula and Lefa Hlongwane, held onto that vital play-off position, whereas TTM sunk further down the log.

Another team on the brink of relegation is Super Eagles following yet another home loss as Ubuntu opened the scoring via Waseem Isaacs before Khanyisa Mayo hit a well-deserved brace to lift his team a point clear.

Siyavutha kept their top-three hopes alive following Sibusiso Dlamini’s strike in Parow, where Igugu Lekapa lost for the first time this year.

Real Kings, who not long ago were just six points behind Highlands, dropped further out of contention after a goalless draw with Mbombela United in KZN, while Stellenbosch FC and Royal Eagles could only manage a goal each at the Athlone Stadium.

The match between Mthatha Bucks and Richards Bay also ended all square at 2-2 with the Eastern Cape outfit leveling matters in the 94th minute.

This was a result neither side wanted especially Bucks, who are 6 points from safety with a mere 12 to play for.
